58% of UK workers think the traditional office will be dead by 2021

According to a study commissioned by Virgin Business Media, 58% of U.K. workers think the offices of today will not exist in ten years’ time (…) The survey also revealed that 56% of respondents believed that they would spend less time commuting in 2021, presumably because they believe they will spend more time working remotely.

Coworking spaces  could play a important role in that shift.

“As employers search for more agile and effective ways of running their businesses, we’re increasingly finding that firms are swapping expensive office spaces in favor of a virtual workplace, where all activities can be conducted remotely”, says Virgin Business Media, quoted in this Gigaom post.
